It’s easy to read this story and miss what a great thing it was for Jehoshaphat to call the nation to prayer over this crisis. Put yourself in his place. It would have been very human to panic. When he heard the news of this army within his borders, we could understand if he yelled, “Call all my top generals! Get the army mobilized immediately! We don’t have a second to waste!” As soon as the troops were mustered, if there was time, he could have stopped for a quick word of prayer. But turning his attention to seek the Lord and calling the nation to prayer and fasting was not automatic.
King Jehoshaphat Was The Fourth King Of Judah Under The Divided Monarchy, The Son Of Asa. We Are First Introduced To Him In 1 Kings 15:24v But Are Told Nothing More Than That He Succeeded Asa. Later, 1 Kings 22:42v Tells Us That He Was 35 Years Old When He Began His Reign And That He Reigned 25 Years (From 873 To 848 BC).
Jehoshaphat Was The Son Of King Asa, And His Mother Was Azubah. Jehoshaphat Came Into Power After The Death Of His Father. He Was The Fourth King Of Judah. Jehoshaphat Is Most Remembered For His Reforms And His Outstanding Victory In A Battle Over The Edomites, The Moabites And The Ammonites In The Wilderness Of Tekoa. We Are Introduced To Jehoshaphat’s Story In 1 Kings 22:41-50, But The Details Of His Life Are Found In 2 Chronicles 17-21.
